Starburst like chew? That is the promise being made by High Octane Chews. Let's see if one chew can give me the energy I need to get through the day.
The Look: High Octane Energy Chews come in a foil lined pouch containing 3 chews. The artwork on the package is beautiful. It reminds me of the graphics you see on a lot of the trendier clothing now. At the top of the package there is a little diagram showing that one chew is equal to one shot (I would of much rather seen that caffeine amount listed). On the back there are directions on use as well as nutritional information. I wish they would of put some type of wording or a picture on the chews so you know what it is in case it is not inside the package.

Taste: The taste of these is something different. To start out there is a mild berry flavoring which is good until you start to chew. Once you start chewing the texture of the chew starts to crumble. The berry flavor then turns extremely sour and has a very odd aftertaste. I like sour candy so I didn't mind the sour but I didn't like the texture of the chew once I started chewing. The aftertaste lingered in my mouth afterwards but it was quickly washed away with a drink.

Does It Work: I tried these on multiple occasions and each time they did the trick nicely. In the morning these are great, I started chewing on one on my way to work and I was wide awake when I arrived. I also tried these after lunch when I was groggy from being full and once again they perked me right up. After chewing one of these you will start to feel the results within about 5 minutes. If you want a more intense buzz then chew two of them and you will get great results. These ended in no crash and the buzz lasted about 3-4 hours.

Overall Thoughts: These are the most powerful energy chews I have tried so far. The taste is better than a bunch of the shots I have tried and the kick is surprisingly above average. These are also a great value as energy shots usually run about 2-3 dollars a piece. You can buy them online at the Official Site or you can also get them from my good friend over at KingOfCaffeine.com. I also spotted these at CVS which surprised me for such a new product. Pick yourself up a bag and let me know what you think.
